Should I wait until the holidays are over to sell?
Truth: This holiday season, all bets are off when it comes to selling and the holidays. Here's why.
According to Realtor.com, active listings are still 44% lower than the pre-pandemic 2017-2019 average. That means the market is playing catch up to buyer demand, holidays or not. If you're still not convinced, here are a few other pros and cons:
Pros of selling during the holidays:
- Serious buyers
- Less competition
- Holiday staging
Cons of selling during the holidays:
- Fewer buyers
- Hard to stay “show-ready”
- Slower closing timeline
